Seattle swipes Marshawn Lynch from the Bills
So much for the Buffalo Bills driving a hard bargain when it comes to a possible trade of running back Marshawn Lynch.
Jay Glazer of FOX reports that the Seahawks have finagled Lynch from the Bills for a fourth-round pick in 2011 and a conditional pick in 2012.
As recently as Monday, the prevailing word was that, even though Lynch wanted out, the Bills wouldn’t be trading him.
Now they have. And the 2-2 Seahawks have picked up a potentially powerful weapon for their run at the NFC West crown.
Meanwhile, the Packers continue to have no one to run the ball. As we pointed out in this week’s power rankings, the pass-heavy attack should be working really well when the weather turns at Lambeau Field.
Lynch is under contract through 2012, but it’s possible that the sixth year of his rookie deal voids.
